5 Films I’m Looking Forward To This Summer


The Fault in Our Stars (2014) Poster

After reading the book which is absolutely stunning, hilarious and now one of my favourites, I have to say I cannot wait to see what the film will be like. I don’t want to get my hopes up too much since the films never live up to the books and I cannot imagine it will be better in this case either but I’m interested to see how they adapt it for the screen. Also it has the fantastic actress Shailene Woodley who for those of you that don’t know, has been in the likes of The Descendants with George Clooney and stars in fantasy thriller Divergent. She hasn’t done badly for herself and I believe she will take on the role of Hazel brilliantly. Ansel Elgort (also in Divergent) takes on the role of Augustus Waters which I think is a surprising choice for his character but I hope he will do it justice. This is a film that I will probably end up crying at.

Released: 19th June



Although this may surprise some, I am a big fan of the Inbetweeners and the TV series never fails  to make me laugh at the gang’s embarrassing antics and efforts to impress girls. However, I was a bit disappointed with the last film and didn’t feel it was a fair representation of how funny the boys were. Therefore, I am worried this one might be lacking in the humour and good storyline like the previous one. All is not lost though as a teaser trailer has been released which did make me laugh and reminded me why I liked the series in the first place. All we know is that the boys are going on a holiday down under so hilarity is bound to ensue.

Released: 6th August 



Most of you will probably have not heard of this one which is because it has been carefully kept under wraps until its release in October. So why, you question, do I know/ want to see this film? Well that reason might be because a certain Robert Downey Jr stars in this drama and for those of you who know me, you will know that RDJ is my favourite actor therefore it is a given that I will go and see this film even if it is rubbish which I’m hoping it won’t be. It also stars the likes of Robert Duvall and Jeremy Strong (Sherlock Holmes and Zero Dark Thirty) who are both brilliant actors so I am expecting big things from this film which is co-produced by Downey’s wife Susan. It should put Downey Jr out there ahead of the release of the second Avengers film due for release next year.

Released: 17th Ocotober



The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 (2014) Poster

A really good book series that I thought at first to be childish but actually isn’t at all and the films are pretty decent too. The last instalment is coming in two parts which I understand to be honest since there is so much to the book that it would be a mammoth film if it was just all put into one. The brilliant Jennifer Lawrence returns again as Katniss Everdeen and I recommend you see her in the new X-Men film because she is amazing in that too. There are so many plot twists in this fantasy thriller that I can’t wait to see portrayed in the film and I hope it does the books justice unlike Twilight.

Released: 21st November



Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (2014) Poster


The only one I have seen in this series is Rise of the Planet Of The Apes which I really enjoyed and was something different to what I normally watched therefore I have high hopes for this one. With the likes of James Franco in the cast it is sure to be a hit and with the return of the main ape, Caesar; nothing has really changed for this sequel as far as we can see. The trailer doesn’t give much away but hopefully a longer one will be released soon and the film will be even better than the last, maybe with less CGI this time if that’s possible.

Released: 17th July
